Founded in 1957

by Capelle, Rector of the educational district of Lyon

INSA-Lyon: institute of excellence

Located on one of most

important french

Technological Campus

INSA Lyonis the leading Engineering College

of an important network

of 5 institute

(Lyon, Rennes, Rouen, Strasbourg,Toulouse)

which confers nearly

13% of all French engineering degrees (Master Level).

INSA-Lyon: institute of excellence

In 2001 INSA-Lyon celebrated its

40th graduation

More than 25 000 engineeringstudentsgraduated from INSA Lyon.
